Critics were shocked when the Christian film I Can Only Imagine brought in more revenue its first weekend than A Wrinkle in Time.
It finished in 3rd place its opening weekend … and in 3rd place its second weekend … beating both Tomb Raider and Sherlock Gnomes.
Its total earnings stand at $38 million as of this writing … not bad for a movie that only cost $7 million to produce.
I Can Only Imagine is a story of pain … redemption … forgiveness … and victory…
It’s the true-life story of Bart Millard – lead singer of the Christian band MercyMe – who grew up with an abusive father … a father who eventually became transformed into a kind man.
The song became a crossover hit song to both Christian and pop music … it became the # 1 song on both charts.
My wife and I – along with some friends – saw the movie.
We highly encourage you to see it…
You might want to bring some tissues to the theater…
Unlike some Christian movies, it’s very well done…
Great character development and acting … a very well-done production.
